1) KENJA NO AI IS A VISUAL FEAST FOR THE EYES.
Jdoramas usually light everything up and look like a crappy soap opera. WOWOW and NHK shows usually have a grittier more movie like look. Ken no Ai reminds you that this is a visual medium and creates so many stunning images.
2) GREAT MOVIE LIKE SOUNDTRACK
Sick of the 'hey let's just all get along and be nice to each other' jdoramas? Kenja no Ai is about how a lot of times in real life, we have to pretend to get along. My favourite character is Yuri-chan. She's the bad guy but I can't hate her because how damaged she is. Everyone in this show is kind of trapped by past sins and don't know how to set themselves free and instead smile and pretend to be happy while living with great burdens.
5) GREAT ACTING BY EVERYONE INVOLVED.
I do not have enough superlatives to describe Kenja no Ai. I'm just sad that it so much better than most jdoramas but not many people have seen it. Definitely deserves to be subbed.

My favorite shirt from this trip. Should have gotten the Megadrive and Dreamcast ones but I have way too many shirts. Now I regret not buying because how many shirts have the Sega logo?
Saturn controller at the back.
My second favorite shirt because its a Reinhard von Lohengramm shirt! Need more Legend of Galactic Heroes goods. There was a Rossen Ritter shirt as well which I didn't get.
I like the Sonic at the back.
Really crappy Berserk shirt. Can't even tell its Guts.
Shibuya with Tachikomas from the Production I.G store.
Got a new 3DS, Xenoblade, Uppers and Rose and the old Castle of Twilight for the Vita. No second hand cause I want to support the developer.
Genie Ibun Roku aka Tokyo Mirage Sessions. Second hand cause it was too cheap to ignore.
Root Letter Premium Edition. I played the PS4 demo and quite enjoyed it.
Bigger battery for Wii U controller, USB Y cable to connect HDD to Wii U, USB C female port so I could connect my mp3 player to my phone, Ryu ga Gotoku badges and 20000 yen in PSN currency. I also got a usb to 3DS adapter but I can't find it atm.

The shops are right in Marui (otherwise known as 0101) in Shibuya. Production I.G is of course the super talented house that animated Ghost in the Shell and Psycho Pass.
A Living Promise / Jinsei no Yakusoku and was pleasantly surprised to see a yatai in Nakano.
